Healthy Early Years London - Bronze Award

Monday, 02 March 2020 14:18

We are delighted to announce that Little Wombles has been given the Bronze award from the Mayor of London's Healthy Early Years London scheme. We are one of only two nurseries in Wandsworth Borough to receive this accreditation.

The process was long and demanding, we had to meet a variety of very specific criteria and provide evidence in regards to:

  • The Personal Development, behaviour and welfare of our children
  • The Quality of teaching, learning and assessment at Little Wombles
  • Effective Leadership and management in the setting

The content also had a lot to do with how we promote healthy lifestyles and physical development.

Receiving this award has been wonderful confirmation that standards at Little Wombles remain extremely high and that we as a team continue to strive for the best for the children in our care.

People who Help us 2020

Monday, 02 March 2020 13:30

What a fantastic month February was. Our topic was People who Help us. The children learnt all about the numerous jobs that people do to help people every day. We visited the Fire station to meet the fire fighters and climb in their fire engine. We heard the noisy siren and saw the blue flashing lights, we even got to try on some of their helmets! We had St George's Teddy Bear Hospital come to visit us at Little Wombles, they taught us all about eating healthily, looking after our teeth, what the inside of our bodies look like and so much more. One of our mummies is a GP so she kindy took time out to come and talk to us about her job and brought in lots of her equipment for us to try out such as a stethoscope and a baby doppler. The dentist came to see us and checked how many teeth we all have and talked to us about keeping our teeth clean and healthy. Finally we ended our topic with a visit from the police officers. We climbed in their van and tried on their helmets and jackets and even held some handcuffs! We have learnt so much and we are so thankful to all in the community that gave up their time for us.

  • Kindergarden at Little Wombles

    Thursday, 07 November 2019 14:00

    At Little Wombles we really value the importance of outdoor education and learning about the world around us. Nicky recently wrote an article for The Inter Schools Advertiser which outlined the impact of Kindergarden, one of our weekly specialist sessions.

    Kindergarden has made such a positive impact on our children and contributes to their development across all areas of The Early Years Foundation stage.

    The Tiger who came to tea!

    Tuesday, 22 October 2019 08:08

    On the 5th of October we had a very special visitor as we read The Tiger who came to tea! The home corner was set up as Sophie’s kitchen and we acted out the story together as the tiger arrived.
    During the day there were so many fun activities related to the story for the children to take part in and all the children came dressed up as Jungle animals. There was jigsaws, tiger biscuit making, face painting, orange play-doh to make jungle animals with, making spider cup-cakes and jam scones and there was a focus on the colours orange and black. What a busy day it was!

  • Babies visit to Battersea Children's Zoo

    Tuesday, 22 October 2019 07:45

    On the 5th of October our babies visited Battersea Children’s Zoo. The whole Nursery have been learning about The Jungle so it was great for them to be able to see some monkeys, birds, snakes and spiders!
    They also loved watching the otters and meerkats being fed and thought the Emus were very funny.
    They practised making lots of animal sounds as we watched the pigs, sheep, miniature ponies and the donkey.

  • Food Around the World

    Tuesday, 22 October 2019 07:40

    On the 1st October we finished our Around the World topic with a feast. Many of our children brought in delights from countries around the world that they or members of their family are connected to.
    A particular favorite was the Haggis! The children loved it! There were also Welsh cakes, Italian biscuits, Danish sandwiches, German sausage, French omelette, American pumpkin pie, Devon Cream Tea to name a few of the delicious items the children tried. We were certainly full up afterwards!
    It was such fun taking a trip around the world with these foods and learning where different foods are from. Thank you so much to all the parents that contributed to make this afternoon a success!

  • Pre-school visit to the Sea Life Centre

    Wednesday, 31 July 2019 07:51

    To end our Under the Sea topic the Pre-schoolers visited the London Sea Life Centre. What a great day we had. We saw so many amazing kinds of fish. We touched star fish, marvelled at the amazing coloured jelly fish, were a little bit wary of the sharks and thought the sea-horses were very cute! The giant turtles were wonderful as were all the different types of rays. We learnt a lot of new names for sea creatures and were very interested to find out where in the world the species can be found.

  • Home grown!

    Tuesday, 30 July 2019 14:46

    Over the past months in our Studio Cultivate sessions we have had great success in growing our own produce. We have planted seeds to grow tomatoes, sun flowers, peas and many kinds of flowers. At the end of each session the children are able to take home seeds that they have planted and try to carry on the growing at home. Take a look at the amazing Job one of our children has done!

  • Sports Day!

    Monday, 15 July 2019 12:53

    Tuesday 9th July 2019 was Little Wombles very first Sports Day! What a great afternoon. After weeks of practise the children took part in many events such as the sack race, egg and spoon race, an obstacle course balencing challenges, running races and much more. We were so impressed at how well the children participated, even our youngest babies took part! It was a fantastic family event, with a wonderful turn out, finishing with a picnic tea. This will definitely be a yearly event at Little Wombles going forward!

  • Transport trip

    Monday, 17 June 2019 13:18

    For the month of May the children were learning all about Transport. We took a trip on the bus to Battersea Heleport. We watched lots of helicopters come and go from the terrace of  The Crown Plaza Hotel. From here we could  also see many boats on the river and aeroplanes flying overhead. On our journey we had lots of fun spotting taxis, cars, motorbikes, vans, trains and much more!
